Consultation on Women in Mining
On the request of the Kautaapikkut Strategy Table and KRG Sustainable Employment Department, Saturviit organized a regional consultation on women in mining in 2015. The objective of the consultation was to better understand women’s concerns related to their working conditions in the mining sector, to discuss barriers they encounter and to pinpoint their needs in order to help increasing their presence and improving their working conditions in the mining sector. Two days of consultation were organized in each Nunavik community in. During the second phase of the project a draft report with the first results of this consultation was discussed with the women during Arnaliat Nipingit 2015 Women’s Conference in Akulivik.
